I've noticed that many bloggers give a summary of their year's sewing. Since this blog is supposed to be both an encouragement to me as well as a log of what I've done, I thought I'd do that, too.
For me, I think this has been a more prolific sewing year than sometimes. I've made 1 dress for oldest dd, 2 for youngest dd, and 3 for myself; a shirt for ds, 2 bias tops (love these!), pj bottoms galore, various and assorted cupcake pincushions, a couple of purses without a pattern, Christmas tree skirt, placemats, a few muslins (good thing for those since one was definitely a wadder!), a bra, and one pair of panties. Yes, that's pretty good.
Did I have favorites? Oh yes. Definitely. I LOVE my purple silk dupionni dress. I really like the floral dress--it is comfortable and cool. The bra--wow. So comfortable that more need to be a priority. Prettier ones though. Beige is boring! haha. I also love the Christmas dress for youngest dd.
Did I have non-favorites? After all the time and effort, it is hard to say that I hate them, but yes. I HATED this Vogue dress! It looks like I was wearing a sack (I don't think I ever posted a picture of me wearing this one.). And the elastic at the top! ICK! Many others made it and loved it. Oh well. I may recycle the fabric for this one. Surely I should be able to squeeze out a short sleeved or sleeveless top.
So, that is that! For the most part, I sewed successes. Plus, I learned quite a bit about fitting and zippers. Many thanks for all the tutorials other sewists have put on their blogs--such a help to learn about techniques or get reassurance.
